Serious car accident possibly caused by distracted driver

Law Offices of James M. Curran

As smartphones and other devices become more intertwined with daily life, the more distracted one can be. One of the many dangers faced while traveling on the road is a distracted driver. The inattentiveness of another behind a wheel can lead to serious injury or even death. To avoid an accident, New Jersey drivers should put away cellphones and any other added distractions to focus on the task of driving.

Recently, two people were seriously injured in a car accident. Before sunrise, police responded to a car wreck involving an SUV and a van. According to the traffic report, the SUV — operated by a 62-year-old driver — collided with the passenger van. There were 18 passengers in the van at the time of the incident.

One of the passengers in the van suffered serious injuries while the others suffered minor injuries. The driver of the SUV also experienced serious injuries. The cause of the accident is currently under investigation. However, based on the rise of car accidents caused by distracted driving, it is likely there was some level of distraction that could have been the cause.

Anyone in New Jersey injured in a car wreck can file a personal injury claim in a civil court against the party believed to be responsible for the accident. If successfully proven in court that the defendant was a distracted driver in a manner that caused the collision, the plaintiff may be awarded financial damages to cover the cost for medical bills or any other financial loss due to the accident. Any person who is suffering from an injury caused by a negligent driver and is interested in filing a personal injury claim should seek the aid of a knowledgeable attorney to help pursue a claim for financial recovery.
